Philadelphia architect Frank Furness produced some of the most aggressive and eye-catching buildings ever seen in the US. His energy, confidence, brashness, vulgarity and love of life vibrate in his architecture. This first biography details his abolotionist upbringing in staid Philadelphia, the transformative experience of the Civil War and its translation into swaggering architecture that met the needs for vivid commercial imagery in the Gilded Age. Includes archival views of demolished masterpieces as well as contemporary photos of buildings still standing today.
